Milton Keynes, 30 November 2015 - The Car Dealer Used Car honours take a host of factors into account as part of the judging process. In addition to retained value after three years, the judging panel took data and feedback from dealers with regard to days to sell and desirability. After combining this information with the verdicts of the magazine’s road test team and website users, the Yeti was declared to be head and shoulders above the competition.
Colin Channon, Editor of Car Dealer magazine said: “The Yeti was a unanimous decision this year. The award was made not only on its ability, but also its desirability – both with users and our own test findings.”
This latest award adds to the Yeti’s impressive tally of used car industry accolades. It was named Best Used Crossover in the 2015 Auto Express Used Car Awards and also took top honours in the Off-Roader category in the 2015 Auto Express Driver Power survey. In total, the Yeti has won 25 key industry titles in the UK alone since its introduction in 2009.
Commenting on the Yeti’s latest honour, Nick O’Neill, National Used Car Sales Manager for ŠKODA UK said: “The Yeti remains hugely popular with new and used car buyers and we’re delighted with this important award. Owners have consistently rated the Yeti as one of the most satisfying cars to own and this is reflected by strong demand in the used sector.”
The ŠKODA Approved Used Car Event is running until 4 December, with used Yeti’s up to two years old available with £1,000 deposit contribution, two years warranty and roadside assistance. For more information contact a local ŠKODA retailer or visit www.skoda.co.uk/used.
Emotion, dynamism and passion – ŠKODA combines all of these qualities with the ‘vRS’ initials. Even before its market launch, the Czech car manufacturer’s first high performance SUV, the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS, proves that it can hold its own on the most challenging race track in the world. Racing driver Sabine Schmitz set the lap record for a seven-seater SUV at the Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife in the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS, highlighting the car’s performance qualities. The KODIAQ vRS extends the range of vRS models in the ŠKODA line up.
